The country’s longest-operating airline is set to fly the Clark-San Vicente route beginning July 16, 2018. The domestic route will connect Pampanga and Palawan and is expected to boost the economies of the two provinces focusing primarily on the growth of the local tourism industry. Pampanga is known for gaming and other leisure destinations while Palawan is best appreciated in its nature-inspired destinations such as pristine beaches, clearest waters and tropical islands that captivate visitors the world over.
Palawan Governor Jose Ch. Alvarez underscored the significance of the air connectivity noting that tourists from northern Luzon will now have easy access to hassle-free flights en route to Palawan.
Taking into account the traffic congestion leading to major airports in Metro Manila, the alternate route will offer travelers brief respite from long queues and missed flights due to traffic woes.
The picturesque town of San Vicente known for its 14-kilometer long beach line is a “stone throw away” from neighboring local tourism hubs like El Nido and Taytay wherein tourists can get a short hop from the airport direct to these townships.
The development of local infrastructures swings forward in steady pace to prepare the township on the influx of visitors that is expected to hit the local shores in the days to come.
The idyllic town of San Vicente is gradually shaping up as the new tourism hub in northern Palawan and is projected to catch the attention of adventure seekers and nature lovers from both domestic and overseas tourism markets.
